My practice combines allopathic Internal Medicine with Gastroenterology. It includes patients for whom I am a PCP, as well as those who are referred to me as a GI specialist. My areas of interest include the diagnosis and treatment of gastroesophageal reflux, ulcer disease, Celiac Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and screening for gastrointestinal cancers. Colonoscopy and Upper GI Endoscopy are performed at Carnegie Hill Endoscopy. The Internal Medicine part of my practice focuses on identifying medical risk factors and preventing or delaying the onset of chronic illness by lifestyle modification. An electronic medical record (eCW) allows use to assess quality measures, send prescriptions electronically, and communicate with patients through a Patient Portal.
